While it was not anything close to the stories you hear about brothers meeting on the field of battle during the Civil War, brothers Alex McPeak and Dillon McPeak were both enthusiastic about their respective teams. Alex sports number 15, is a freshman and plays defender for the Coshocton Redskins varsity soccer squad while his brother Dillon, wearing number 21, is a senior at River View, and plays defender for the Bears. The match was held at the River View soccer complex with the Bears in white and Coshocton in black.
Parents are Denise and John McPeak, and the family lives in the River View district. They work for the Coshocton City Schools and Alex attends Coshocton under open enrollment.
Both boys said they were looking forward to the match and were eager to help their team win.
The match was tied 0-0 at halftime. The final score was 1-0, River View.

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
